Secret screens

Is there / can there be a list of secret screens in one place, possibly stickied? Maybe referred to as diagnostic screens instead. It's frustrating searching the whole forum and not know if there's another screen which might provide better info.

HOMEx5 FF PLAY REW PLAY FF.....Platform Secret Screen, system operations menu (reboot, sleep, pings, screen resolutions), IP info, wireless secret screen link

 

HOMEx5 REWx3 FFx2.............Bit Rate Override menu (n/a for NOW TV)

 

HOMEx3 UPx2 RIGHT LEFT RIGHT LEFT RIGHT …..Installed Channels Info

 

HOMEx3 UPx2 LEFT RIGHT LEFT RIGHT LEFT …..Developer Settings Screen

I've omitted one secret screen that shouldn't be tampered with at all. Hope that helps.

Better add a warning for anybody else reading this that if you are not sure what you are doing best not to open any of these diagnostic  screens or change any settings unless directed to by a member of the NOW TV team or a help article.

There is a minor error in the list above:

 

The  remote key inputs for the Channels Info and Developer Settings screens are swapped.

Re: Secret screens

It seems as though the developer mode screen is no longer accessible (I know that and the channels sequence are the wrong way around).

Does anyone know if it's moved?

Re: Secret screens

@ppfearn Yeah unfortunately NOW TV have removed the ability to use developer mode a while back so you can't access that anymore.
